Register for 2017 Alaska Regional Energy Workshops

Three scheduled for January 2017



Many communities in rural Alaska are taking steps to lower energy costs, mitigate the impacts of climate change, and reduce reliance on imported fuel. To advance these efforts, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Indian Energy provides on-the-ground support tailored to equip Native villages and corporations and their partners with relevant resources, technical assistance, skills, and analytical tools to develop sustainable energy solutions.

Facility- and Community-Scale Project Planning and Development Workshops
In January, the Office of Indian Energy is offering a series of regional workshops designed to provide Alaska Native leaders and their staffs with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate the complexities of developing energy projects, including:
  • How renewable energy and energy efficiency projects can help address community energy challenges and advance clean energy goals
  • Effective strategies and tactics for identifying potential funding and financing opportunities, overcoming challenges, and gaining community buy-in
  • Experience-based insights and lessons learned from other Native villages.
Each two-day workshop will be broken into four sessions:
  • Local/state energy updates
  • Energy technology
  • Energy funding and financing
  • Energy communications and outreach.

There is no cost to attend the workshops, but participants are responsible for their own lodging and travel costs. Coffee, a light breakfast, and an afternoon snack will be served.
